Seeing things like beadwork, which would be common at a pow wow walking down the street of a city like Toronto – being cool, fashionable and mainstream – can make a big difference in a youth’s perception of their culture in general.” Sessions are offered weekly and will teach how to properly measure a foot, sew together the boot and the art of beading.

    All images via Instagram/hobbs_photoandfilm “There is little doubt that motherhood is a completely transformative experience that touches every aspect of our beings, and its mark on our bodies is no exception,” write Aimee and Jenna Hobbs, two Alberta-based photographers who have launched a social media campaign to celebrate women and their postpartum bodies.  “In a society that is constantly trying to tell us that what beauty is, women are beginning to push back.” A few years ago, the pair noticed that a number of mothers were asking to be absent from their family portraits because they were ashamed of the way they looked after having children. This was heartbreaking.

    Officer threatens to arrest woman for breastfeeding in public

    When it comes to breastfeeding in public, everyone has a right to their own opinion. But it’s quite another matter when an officer — someone whose job it is to protect the basic human rights of citizens — allows his personal opinions get in the way of the law. “Tonight while in Piggly Wiggly with my sister and both my children (the oldest 20 months and the youngest 1 month old today) while nursing, a deputy approached me right when I was about to leave and informed that I needed to cover up because someone might find it ‘offensive,'” shared Savannah Shukla in a Facebook post. Shukla lives in Georgia, a state where breastfeeding in public is legal and certainly not considered offensive.
